Keeping the Faith
A conservative following politics these days can have a hard time keeping the faith. Saint Paul wrote the words at the top of the page in what were also trying times. Those of us who care deeply about our country and are political activists can get discouraged. But Paul was giving us an important message. God is in charge. Even of politics. There have been much worse times than these. In the (looking at the whole panoply of history) comparatively recent time of pre WWII Germany, think how hard it must have been to keep the faith. The world is nowhere near as badly off now as it was then. So those of us faithful need to keep praying and keep trusting in God even when it seems impossible to trust. Dear Lord, give me the ability to let go and let You be in charge.
